Well there’s bad news and good news from a study on creatine as a possible treatment for fibromyalgia. First, the good news: it does seem to help improve muscle function, and for anyone with muscular weakness or other issues, that might be a good thing.
But the bad news is that creatine was not found to help with any of the other major symptoms of fibro, including pain, brain fog, or sleep issues.
The study was conducted by a team led by Bruno Gualano, PhD, at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. Other fibro researchers questioned the need for the study in the first place, since, they hold, fibromyalgia’s causes reside largely in the brain, rather than in the muscles.
